The Facts

Spending £10 in a local food outlet is actually worth £25 to the local economy, as it gets re-spent locally several times (a local multiplier of 2.5). Whereas, £10 spent in a supermarket leads to only £2.40 spent in the local economy.

Smaller independent 'local food' outlets support three times the number of jobs than national supermarket chains! One job for every £46k in turnover, compared to one job per £138k turnover at national chains.

Locally produced food bought from a local retailer is worth almost 10 times as much to the local economy as the same food from a long distant producer, purchased in a supermarket.
